I don't think I've entirely taken in this chapter so I'll write up some of what Natsume commented today in her blog. Yesterday when reading FB she was so depressed and disconsolate over the chapter, but today, after thinking about things, she was wondering if maybe she hadn't gotten caught in Takaya-sensei's trap instead. The final scene where Kyo kisses Tohru; Kyo learned all too well how frightening it would be for him to possibly lose Tohru. Afterall, whether the two would be together or not depending entirely on Kyo. In any case, she suspects that the latest events have made Kyo change and move in a good way and that hopefully he'll start to move forward again from here on. *__* (We can always hope. ^^;)

Soushuu commented that saying "ichiou" in Shigure's comment when telling Akki that Kureno was all right was a little harsh and laughed. It's one of those things that's a bit hard to express/translate and I suspect they mean the subtext of the word, I'd typically translated the words as "for what it's worth" or "in any case", basically as a non-committal aside. ^^;

Otherwise, so many of the scenes this chapter were really sweet, dear, important, hints at things with the characters... Little details, but there. *___* (Some of which were written in my quick post to the FGML). Anyhow, like Natsume, I think I need to stew over this chapter a bit before I can form any proper views on the chapter. ^^; The kiss scene though, it does make me wonder. Tohru had been hoping for her thoughts/feelings to reach Kyo and she was hoping they would, Kyo telling her to lie still (lit don't talk), and that it was enough already (reminiscent a bit of Hiro's, Kisa's and Haru's conversation about Rin) and that he understood, the tears forming in Tohru's eyes when Kyo kissed her... It makes me think that Kyo has been forced to face things a little now, that (hopefully) he'll start to move forward rather than remain wallowing in the past, and that his kissing Tohru, tells her that as well. We can always hope. ;_;

Furuba-I dare you

*snorts* I knew I was giving Shigure too much credit. Ahhhh...well, his mistreatment is endearing, even if I am the only one who thinks so. XD

*laughs* Well Shigure is Shigure, and I think it'd be a little weird for him to be openly concerned over Kureno given how he so readily admitted to really hating him. ^^; But he did pass on to Akito that Kureno was all right so his being so gentle with her, I think that was from he, himself. ^_^

Hopefully Kyo will end up going on with Tohru, and such... I agree with you two, there... I didn't think of that, though. But I bet this is a step forward for Kyo, just hopefully Tohru will live. ;~; I think she will!

Yuki & Ayame

I hope you're right about what Kyo's kiss meant. Both of them deserve so much love. I have a weakness for emotionally damaged manga boys. And she needs someone like Kyo to make sure the others don't unthinkingly take advantage of her.

Hey I have a question: Shigure slept with Akito's mom, Rin, right? How'd he do that? I mean Kanna too is a Sohma but she couldn't do anything with Hatori, and Akito's mom isn't involved in the zodiac thing...

Shigure slept with Akito's mother - REN. Not Rin. You want to know how people can have sex without hugging?? ^^; Believe me, it's possible. And it doesn't have to be doggy style either. And if Kana and Hatori were so inclined, they could very well have done it too. Any more info, you'll have to go look up yourself. :P

Fruits Basket

I've been thinking about Fruits Basket lately and how much the characters have changed. I first thought Shigure was awesome but i now know his true thoughts and ideas (kind of... no one can be sure). Kyo has changed a lot and is beginning to step out on his own without regret or fear. There is still some regret but he's learning to get past it with Tohru's help. I was really happy to see Kyo finally take a big step forward emotionally and kiss Tohru. I think it's something she's been needing too because in my point of view, things haven't been going to well for her and she's needs comfort right now. I wonder if Yuki knew what Kyo was going to do (kissing Tohru) and if it bugged him that Kyo would do that. I have a feeling that Tohru will be okay but then again something is telling me that something is going to go wrong in the hospital. Kureno might leave Akito now because of her outrage but then again he might tell himself that she still needs him. Somehow i think Akito may understand or forgive Tohru for coming invovled with their family. At least i hope so. Can't wait till next chapter. But it's in more than a month and i dont know if i can wait that long. lol
